Kids' festival offers fun

If you're looking for a fun, free, and family-oriented activity, gather up the little ones and head to Centennial Mall Saturday for the 2004 Celebrate Children's Festival.

There will be more than a dozen different hands-on activities designed to inspire, intrigue and keep young kids busy while having fun. Making handprints, a sand table filled with surprises and making stained glass are just a few of the planned activities.

"And, of course, there will be lots of balloons" said Judy Whilden, owner of Sunrise Kids Preschool and Child Care and chairperson for the Moffat County Early Childhood Coalition.

The coalition is a group of more than 16 individuals who work directly with early childhood education in Moffat County. The festival was planned to coincide with the national celebration of the Week of the Young Child.

"It will also help inform the community of the resources available here to families with young children," Whilden said.

"It will be just a fun day being together for parents and children," she said.

Whilden said the activities are geared for children up to age 10 and several organizations, including the Work Force Center, the Sheriff's Department and Head Start, will be passing out information about their services. The event begins at 9 a.m. and lasts until noon.
